Frank on Ferne McCann: First Time Mum

Frank has starred on First Time Mum every now and again, and was recently seen taking part in Ferne’s campaign with tyre firm Kwik Fit.

The campaign focuses on what father figures in your life have taught you whilst growing up.

As a thank you to him, Ferne thought she’d book her and her grandad to fly on a glider (an airplane without an engine), which was on his bucket list.

He said the journey was “tremendous” and that he’d like to do it again.

Which side of Ferne’s family is Frank on?

  • Although it hasn’t officially been confirmed, it appears that Frank is on Ferne’s mum’s side of the family

Frank regularly sees Ferne and her mum Gilly, so it looks like he is close to that side of the family, especially with his great-granddaughter.

His relationship with Sunday tends to bring tears to viewers’ eyes!

Ferne’s dad hasn’t been present when Frank has appeared on First Time Mum, however Gilly was there to watch him fly a glider.
